Wilkins lacks great speed but has terrific short-area quickness and acceleration. He also runs with strong contact balance. In terms of decision-making, peripheral vision, and footwork, Wilkins' vision is among the best in this rich class of running backs. He earned some first-team reps during June minicamp and flashed as a downfield receiver. If he can prove competent and consistent as a pass protector, Wilkins could surprise as a contributor--if not the eventual starter--for the Colts.

Summary

The 24 year old rookie from Mississippi is one to keep on your deep radar. He was a 1,000 yard rusher against SEC competition as a Senior in 2017, averaging a hefty 6.5 yards per carry. The Colts drafted the 6'1, 217 pound running back in the fifth round after taking the smaller, quicker Nyheim Hines a round earlier. Wilkins struggled to climb up the draft ranks due to a less than stellar combine, but his experience and success against SEC defenses speak volumes. There is also an opportunity factor involved with the growing interest in Wilkins. The Colts don't have a surefire lead back, giving Wilkins a chance to prove his worth and move up the depth chart during organized activities, training camp and preseason. (May 20)
